Pop-rock is NOT a genre that is very popular in Asia, but it is something that I personally enjoy. In the US, there are big name pop-rock artists like OneRepublic, Maroon 5, and Taylor Swift. For an Asian pop fan like myself, however, you really have to go out of your way to find good pop-rock music. Any Younha fans out there? How about that Cho Yong Pil? No? Guess, I'm the only one who listens to Korean pop-rock.

Recently, I have been listening to Mình Yêu Từ Bao Giờ by Vietnamese singer/actor Miu Lê. Mình Yêu Từ Bao Giờ is a song from the movie Em Là Bà Nội Của Anh (Miss Granny) coming out this December. Em Là Bà Nội Của Anh is rom-com being backed by the South Korean mega entertainment company CJ Entertainment. It will be the company's fourth film venture in Vietnam. The first film, Mai Tinh 2 (Let Hoi Decide), set a Vietnamese box office record for highest grossing film with 101 billion VND revenue (more than 4.75 million US dollars) in 2014.

Dem Rom-coms

The MV for Mình Yêu Từ Bao Giờ reminds me of the 1999 rom-com She's All That with Freddie Prinze Jr., Rachael Leigh Cook, and Paul Walker. RIP Paul Walker. Anyone else getting that same vibe?
